there is a searchable, linkable permanent archive of several freenode channels.  I posted
on #irclogger asking about hosting #lucene archive, and apparently all we have to do is ask,
after first determining that nobody objects.  Here's a link (not incidentally, this is exactly
what we will have for #lucene once the service is switched on):

There's also a lot of chatter that happens on IRC, so logging is going to have a lot of noise.
 I'm still on the fence on what to do.  I don't want to get in people's way, but we also need
to have traceability about decisions, and we certainly can't have answers like "We discussed
this on IRC and you missed it, too bad" happening (not saying that has happening, just saying
I don't want to see it).
